Same problems

A lot of the information that you get from the ISBN number is incomplete. For example, if the title has a colon (:) I’ve had to enter the rest of the title manually every time. If there is more than one author, I have to enter the other authors manually each time. Often, when there is an editor for a book, I have to take them out of the author field and put them into the editor field. Finally, there of been a number of occasions where does failed to include the publisher.

I have now entered about 350 books over the last 2 years, and these problems have been consistent the entire time – – even with the most recent updates.

Finally, I’ve never been able to get your system to recognize the ISBN numbers of magazines or journals.

This is the second review that I have written, my first being about 2 years ago, and the issues I have mentioned here I mentioned back then. I have even been in contact with the developer several times, and these issues remain.

Developer Response ,

Sorry that the app is not working out for you. The latest updates fixes some of the bugs you’ve mentioned, so I encourage you to give it a try.
Citationsy will never be able to scan magazines and journals.
